This Florida restaurant offers grasshopper tacos and it’s endorsed by Guy Fieri

When you think of tacos, you usually think of chicken, carnitas, or steak. However, this Florida restaurant added another Guy Fieri-approved ingredient to the list: grasshoppers.

Mexican restaurant, taquiza tacoswas featured on Food Network “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” season 24 episode 9, and it showed just how much the customers really eat the dish. The culinary host even tried it with guacamole and loved it.

It’s located at 1351 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, right in the heart of the city, so you can only imagine how many people have tried a tasty grasshopper.

They are called chapulines and are a Mexican delicacy. Those who follow the place on social media agree and constantly comment on how much they love this menu item.

“You may think chapulines are ‘scary’, but in Mexico they are considered a delicacy… 🇲🇽 #CasaDeMasa#AlwaysGrinding🌽“, wrote the restaurant in one of their legends.

According Culinary Education Institute, cooking is a strong source of protein. It also has a bland taste, so it is usually paired with spices and seasonings.

The traditional way to make them is to grill them. They are crispy and mix well with adobo and sit on top of guacamole.

The restaurant tells its customers, “don’t hit it [chapulines] until you try it!”

Other items at the restaurant include their non-GMO blue corn tortillas, which you can see how they’re made on the Food Network episode.

You can get an order of three tacos for just $16.50.

The taco shop prides itself on its authentic style cuisine.
